Le Grand Comptoir and Real Food Company Open at George Bush Intercontinental Airport
Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) - December 2009 -- Travelers through Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport have two new venues to enjoy while waiting at the airport for a flight or during an airport layover. One is Le Grand Comptoir, a French brasserie with an extensive selection of wines by the glass. The second is the Real Food Company, which offers a large menu featuring everything from sandwiches to barbeque. Both are located in terminal C (South). The following is an excerpt from the PRNewswire press release:
"Le Grand Comptoir is an authentic French brasserie and, with over 80 styles of wine available by the glass, it is truly unlike any other airport wine bar. Fresh, upscale and contemporary, its rich wood finishes are balanced by vibrant green hues, stonework accents, posh leather stools and a long, elegant brass bar dressed with modern pendant lighting. Its bistro-inspired fare includes signature crab bakes and tempting strawberry crepes, transforming a layover from tedious to delicious. Le Grand Comptoir also offers a premium bar, selection of handcrafted beers, and range of specialty coffees.
Providing eight separate and distinctly different menus at once, an active open kitchen and a dedicated head chef, Real Food Company definitely epitomizes its name -- 'real food'. This vast 6,200 sq. ft. modern marche-style restaurant entices travelers with beautiful displays of fresh ingredients and the fragrance of its bakery. Theater-style cooking is complemented with artistic flourish amongst the constantly evolving menus. It is an extravagant affair. Real eggs, fresh artisan bread and passionate chefs are all to be expected at Real Food Company. An endless array of gourmet salads featuring baby field greens, grilled chicken, toasted almonds, fresh mushrooms and green onions tossed with balsamic vinaigrette dressing, sourdough bread filled generously with roast turkey and aged Swiss, traditional and innovative toppings are available on the oven-baked pizzas. Texas barbeque brisket and juicy roasted chicken with choice sides of ginger glazed baby carrots and southern-style creamed corn are also on the menu."
